Jesus Speaks of Focus, Forgiveness, and Faith (Luke 17:3-6)

Jesus commands us to watch our worse enemy – SELF. Jesus then commands us to rebuke those that sin against us, and to forgive those that repent. When the apostles hear this, they express in dismay their need for more faith (belief) before they could comply with these commands. Jesus, by illustration, explains that faith is not a matter of quantity but of obedience.

Jesus Is the LIGHT: How to Walk in God’s Light (Part 3) – 1 John 1:9-10

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Part of walking in the light is having a proper response to SINS – what we do that we shouldn’t do, or what we don’t do that we should. We examine a very often-quoted verse (1 John 1:9) in light of its context, and find out that many have this verse ALL WRONG. The verse does not tell a believer to ask for forgiveness or say that he/she is sorry for his/her sins. It also is not a “get out of sin card” that believers are to be using as the fix-all for personal sins.
